If you’re planning to use cardboard boxes to pack for packing your fragile items, you need to follow our tips. Never overpack the boxes, then later hope that some extra packing tape will keep them secured. Bulging boxes will also make the whole process more difficult for your long distance relocation to Dallas. Overstuffed boxes are harder to stack on the moving truck. Instead of trying to overpack your boxes by cramming more that they can hold, get more boxes than you think you’ll need! In addition to this, our long distance movers Dallas have to remind you that cardboard has a shelf life. Cardboard boxes can also become flimsy over time — so don’t count on pulling your old boxes out of the basement to keep your stuff safe. Old towels, small blankets, newsprint, or even paper towels are not going to protect your fragile items. They are not wise choices. Newsprint can be old and filthy and means you have even more washing to do in your new home. Paper towels are not strong and because of it are not reliable. Old towels slip easy and cannot be secured in place with tape, which is crucial for proper packing. You should invest in the proper tools and packing services from our long distance movers Dallas and you’ll be just fine.
